Online English Tutor Jobs

Regularly updated list of the 20+ top paying domestic online tutor jobs in Australasia [2023].

Do you want to find the perfect online English tutoring role?

When I first began looking for an online English tutoring job during my university degree in early 2016, I was overwhelmed by information. I applied for the first job that I found on a popular job website, passed their interview and began tutoring at an hourly rate that I though was quite good.

With nothing to compare it to – I didn’t know that I could have been making so much more! Don’t make the same mistake as me. 

  • There are 100s of tutoring companies around Australia and only a fraction offer 100% ONLINE tutoring;
  • Jobs range from $25AUD to ~$100AUD/hr+ and it isn’t easy to compare how much each company offers;
  • Some companies only hire current students, while others only hire qualified teachers, and it is difficult to know.

Instead – save time, make more money and find out all the information that you need to find the best online tutor role with this list…

Why become an English online tutor?

The ‘teach’ in this website usually refers to teaching English online to students located internationally – but there is another option for working from home – tutoring. One in seven school children in Australia will be tutored at some time during their lives. According to Mohan Dhall, CEO of the Australian Tutoring Association, “… there’s about 80,000 students who engage in some form of tutoring in Australia. As an industry, it is conservatively valued at around $1.3 billion and growing.” 

Online English tutoring is the perfect role for:

  • Those who want to work after-school hours and weekends;
  • Those who want to supplement their income with part-time work;
  • University students;
  • Current or retired teachers;
  • TESOL/TEFL certificate graduates. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for tutoring services – especially online – has increased. 

What's on the list...

  • Hourly rates (minimum and maximum range – pro rata) in AUD and NZD;
  • The average rate is $40AUD/$43NZD but goes up to $100AUD/$106NZD (including superannuation);
  • Peak booking hours;
  • Class size (number of students);
  • Student ages;
  • Experience requirements (in years);
  • Teaching material provided or required;
  • City of company/location of students (for potentially additional in-person lessons, if desired);
  • Notes on job and company specifics.

…but why should I pay for a job?

Maybe you’ve seen other free lists and information online and wonder why you should pay? That’s fair.

Almost all of the information regarding online English tutoring jobs that you’ll find out there on the internet is sponsored or works on a referral basis – meaning, they get paid to recruit you. Instead, we wanted to put the control back in your hands. 

You’ll avoid taking the lesser paid role you saw on a random forum and get access to the best, most up-to date information available anywhere. You’ll save yourself wasted time applying for companies you are not eligible for, or accepting an unsuitable job from one of the major companies, when a smaller and lessor known competitor is looking for your skills, specialisations and qualifications – but does not advertise widely. I assure you, this list the only one of its kind on the internet.

Paying for this list helps me to maintain and research the job market on an ongoing basis. It means that I can remove any companies that treat their teachers badly or don’t pay them without being concerned about having paid ties to them. I can list small, specialised companies for you without fear of them being inundated with unqualified applicants.
